21st CCLC Afterschool Program Orientation

Dear PS 26 Families,

The Leadership Program is a dynamic urban organization that enriches lives, emboldens confidence, and expands options by building strong leaders in classrooms and communities. We look forward to our 4th year of providing after school programming in math, English, STEM, the arts, and physical enrichment to PS 26 students, as well as supportive and educational workshops for Families and Staff.

Like last year, we will be providing our services in a blended model. We plan to offer live remote classes at first, and hope to build in classes in-person as needed and allowed. All of our services are modeled on the strong safety protocols developed during the school day, following the same mandates and procedures required by the Dept of Education.

Please fill out the interest survey (linked on the flyer)  so we can provide programming that meets your family’s needs. We want to know your interest in remote /blended learning as well as the specific learning areas that interest your child(ren). Please also click the link to complete the mandatory enrollment form.

We look forward to your responses and are happy to answer any questions you may have at our upcoming Orientation session on Oct 8. (invitation to follow).
